Shadow Box by guest designer Ann-Marie

by admin


I really like the grungy look at the moment and decided to do the Shadowbox with that idea in mind.

Before I put it all together I put the four side pieces in an embossing folder and ran them thru the big shot. I then inked the pieces and covered them in Rock Candy crackle.

The outer edge I have used lots of different bits and pieces that I had in my stash along with some muslin cloth and lots of texture paste inks and mists to come up with the grungy result. When it was all dry I rubbed over some bronze buff.

The Lest We Forget piece was done with some two toned embossing powder, I love to use embossing powder on my chippies and I love the effect that this two toned embossing powder gives. Sometimes I use two different colours which I find gives a great effect on things that you might like to age like cogs. The roman clock face was done the same way and then I rubbed some bronze buff over the piece.


With my husband in the Army, I am just loving the Rising Sun badges, with this one I have used my Distress markers to colour and then coated with Rock Candy Crackle, I also did this with the medal chippies and the other outer clock piece.

I have really enjoyed being a guest designer for Scrap FX, Cheers AnnMarie.
